Ever since, the two cats have taken up residence around the museum, worming their way into the hearts of its staff. Now, when a member of the feline duo tries to walk in the front door, they receive snuggles and pets from the white-gloved guards before being put back outside.

One Japanese museum has been having two unusual feline guests wanting to enjoy some of Japan’s art.
Two eager art lovers have been trying to enter this museum for years, but despite their persistence, they have yet to take in even one exhibit.
It started two years ago, when the Hiroshima Onomichi City Museum of Art debuted a show entitled “Cats — Mitsuaki Iwago Photography Exhibition.” A few days after the feline-centric exhibit opened, an unusual visitor arrived, creating the best publicity possible.
A little black cat tried to gain entry to the museum via the sliding glass doors, and it seemed as if he would be successful.
But just before passing the precipice, the cat was spotted by a security guard and rudely turned away. Twitter user @mukusuke captured the exchange, and posted the photos to social media, where the defeated kitty quickly gained attention.

But the cat would not be dissuaded so easily.
In March of last year, the same neighborhood cat, named Ken Chan, returned, and was promptly sent on his way yet again.
But this time, he brought a friend. A chubby tabby named Gosaku, or Go-Chan, decided that he too wanted to take in some culture, and accompanied his buddy on yet another excursion.
And they sure keep the guards busy.
